Mrs. Melanie Willett
Mrs. Willett has been a fixture at Mathews Elementary for twenty-three years and looks forward to serving PISD for many more years to come. She has spent the majority of her career in fifth grade but was known to teach kindergarten and second grade once upon a time. Mrs. Willett has two grown children (who attended elementary school at Mathews) and lives with her husband, Tim, in McKinney. When not at Mathews in the capacity of team leader, she enjoys exercising, yoga, watching all sports - especially football, and helping take care of her god-children, Luke, Vivi, Pete, and Wilson. Mrs. Willett has prepared a bucket list of activities she hopes to accomplish. One that she can mark off her list is skydiving, having taken care of that adventure some years ago. Recently, Mrs. Willett also crossed off climbing a mountain….by scaling Via Ferrata outside Banff, Canada. Other bucket list items include a return visit to Florence, Italy, writing a children's book, and hosting workshops for teachers where they can learn engaging reading strategies to use in the classroom. Mrs. Willett loves teaching at Mathews Elementary and treasures the opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of students each and every day.
Mrs. Willett attended Texas A&M University for her undergraduate work and received her Master's Degree in Education from the University of North Texas.
